I've been searching for a pair of Bluetooth headphones for a while now and when I first heard of the Denon Globe Cruiser I was immediate intrigued. Even though I thought the price was a little steep I went ahead and ordered them. Once you take them out of the box you'll instantly see how good looking these headphones really are. They look great with my iPhone and I was impressed with them overall. The Bluetooth works very well except for the noticeable 1-2 second lag the first happens when playing a song or video. But after a minute or two the Bluetooth seems to catch up and it appears to sync very well, which is especially important for watching movies. They feel very very comfortable on my ears but the only complaint I can give about them is that they at times feel a bit too tight on the top of my head. Although this could be because I have a larger sized head than the average person. The noise-cancellation feature is a welcomed addition and I use it regularly while traveling. You can definitely notice the difference in noisy areas such as on the plane. Although, the noise canceling feature doesn't seem to be as impressive as ones I've tested out on Bose devices. I was also very excited to test out the other control buttons on the headphones such as play/pause and the volume control. They work as advertised although I wished they had a separate button for skipping songs instead of pushing the play/pause button twice. I'm also glad they included a microphone for taking phone calls but I've found it to not work as well when using the Bluetooth. Using the cord for the headphones will clearly improve the quality of the audio and when I'm not moving around I tend to use the cord more than the Bluetooth for this very reason.Read more ›

I like to listen music in my home. I just hang on the headphone and walk around in my apartment. It still work perfectly. Sound's good.
Still testing it.
But I think I don't wanna return it.

The title says it all.....I really wanted to like these.

Putting aside the price & the generally ambivalent reviews on this site & elsewhere, I thought these looked like high quality gear.

This was reinforced when they arrived in a beautiful box, similar to Apple's packaging in general. The headphones themselves are gorgeous & feel very solidly constructed.

That said, I'm forced to return these after less than a week of use. There are a number of issues, as follow:

- The weight of these on the head is heavy. Not something I'd want during a headache. They also fit very tightly, although I confess to a large head (7 & 7/8 hat size).
- The instructions are flat out incorrect. They state that one cannot initiate calls from the headphones. One can, which I found by accident.
- Several important buttons (on/off, noise canceling) are very, very small & hard to use. I was kind of shocked by this, given the large size of the headphones. Perhaps over time one could learn to use them, but I literally had to take the headphones off while driving for this reason.
- The noise canceling was modest at best. I expected this in advance, based on other reviews.
- Mid range frequencies (e.g. human voice) were dampened during audio playback, although highs & lows were good. Other reviews also noted this.
- Phone call quality was below average. Specifically, I was continually asked to speak up, much more so than my previous (much cheaper) headphones.
- The straw that broke the back was trouble getting the headphones to reliably work. Several times they would not acquire a signal, despite repeatedly on/off, re-connecting, etc.

On the plus side, these were pretty comfortable (if quite heavy), when they did work the signal did not drop, & pop music sounded pretty good.

But for this price, I consider these a failure of engineering. Too bad, because they are stunning headphones in appearance.

The charging of the battery lasts longer approximately 10 hours. The headphones are very comfortable. Bluetooth connectivity is faster and easier. The quality of the sound is very good. Both Bass and treble are perfect.

I highly Recommend On-Ear Wireless Headphones.

I originally did a terrible review of these headphones and to be honest i hated them at first But they do require a lot of burning in and they just get more and more awesome, as for comfortability, iv'e invented something that stops ear fatigue and i tweaked the ear cup foam by taking it out and washing it in hot water, I then replaced it and the ear cups form to the shape of your ears with this method and the formula that iv'e made these headphones are quite awesome, but saying that i'm still pissed that they claim to use memory foam but its not and I still stand by my word that the $ 29.99 Nakamichi NK2030 Headphones absolutely Cream these and all of my other headphones including my $500 ones

Pro: Good battery life, decent range on them.

Con: Noice reduction was good, but not as much I had hoped for. Still a great pair of headphones.

I found these headphones to have great sound, easy connectivity, and reasonable controls. The bass is strong, and the sound over bluetooth is great. They are *big* and a bit heavy.

I have to return them, however. The sound leaks like a $15 pair of headphones. Everyone in the room can hear my music when I wear these. Since they are advertised as "travel" headphones, I thought they would be good for commuting on planes and trains: not possible, without offending everyone near me. Noise cancellation on/off had no effect on the leak.

I bought these headphones out of frustration with sennheiser (which consistently break at the end of two years), but I think I will buy yet another sennheiser pair, since they have no sound leakage. Too bad: I want to keep these for the (better) sound quality!
